This gingerbread mini book from Kinder Lake is a perfect book for young readers. The words in the story were chosen because they are either words that can be decoded or sight words. The only word to teach is gingerbread. This makes it perfect to either read as a class or have students read it on their own.
The characters are all animals that you would see in Northeastern United States wooded areas. I made this as a real world connection for my students in Pennsylvania.
You can teach how to make an inference and using picture clues. This is perfect for any gingerbread unit or a stand along reader.
With the simple design it makes putting the book together easy. Just copy, cut in half, and staple. If you have a copy machine that staples check to see if it has the option to double staple. Then you only need to cut.
